Simon Kidd - Murlach

27 April - 20 May 2021

Erskine, Hall & Coe are delighted to present Murlach, an exhibition of new works by Simon Kidd.

Murlach Bay, in County Antrim of Northern Ireland, is a place that Simon Kidd has visited regularly from early childhood. The bay became a catalyst for contemplation and the source of inspiration for this exhibition of new work. Kidd's response to the landscape is reflected in the work - he brings "the place into the piece."

The beauty of the Irish landscape has been a lodestone for Simon Kidd’s work from the beginning. He recently wrote that his work "is a response to Northern Ireland as a country in terms of both the civilisation as well as the physical land it encompasses. It is a reflection and a response of the physical, historic, and symbolic."
